Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

The contact owns a 2001 Ford Excursion. The contact was driving approximately 65 mph when the windshield wipers began to shut on and off intermittently. The manufacturer was contacted in regards to NHTSA campaign id number: 01V258000 (visibility: Windshield wiper/washer: Motor) but the contact was informed that the VIN was not included in the recall. The vehicle was not repaired. The approximate failure mileage was 130,000.

I have a 2001 Excursion and the driver's side seat belt pops free by it's self several times during a couple of hours of driving. Dealer said it wasn't covered. I also had the windows & door locks stop working back in 2006. It needed a new GEM module and some fuse panel work (due to a leak in the windshield seal from the factory). I finally saved up enough money to get everything fixed-- roughly $1100. The rep. From the window company said he has seen several like this himself.
